As we mentioned earlier this year, Northern Ontario Dentists should make sure they are in full compliance with the Employment Standards Act. This includes making sure the ESA poster is up, abiding by the rules around hours of work, overtime pay, holiday pay agreements, public holidays, paid vacation, time between shifts, breaks, leaves of absences, and employee lists to name a few.
From October 2017 to December 2017, the Ministry of Labour will be auditing Dentists for employment standards compliance for the Northern Region (including North Bay, Sudbury, Timmins, Thunder Bay and Sault Ste. Marie).
If you are a dentist in this area and you are unsure about any aspect of ESA compliance, DMC LLP offers Employment Standards Act audits to make sure your practice can pass a ministry inspection easily. Give us a call and let us know if you have any questions.
